BIG weekend! I slept in my tiny house, in my own bed. It as awesome! Very very cool to wake up in a house you built! I have since fixed my front door as well since it wouldn’t latch before, I thought that was pretty important.
The first annual Mini Maker Faire was this weekend, at which I gave a presentation on the construction of my house, I think it went fairly well especially considering my nerves. There seems to be A LOT of people in the valley interested in this sort of living solution. I was very surprised! There were people that came down just to see me and talk to me, what an awesome feeling. One couple drove from Elko Nevada to see me and one of the other presenters, very cool people. They drove up in their bus which is being converted to their second tiny house currently. The were SO nice and even gave me a tour of their work in progress, I have attached them below. For all of you that I met and talked to, thank you for making that such a great experience!
I did get rained out from finishing my siding this weekend but James and I got plenty of other stuff done! On Friday dad finished all of the plumbing and even got the tires put on the wheels. I have the sneaking suspicion that I will need to add a spacer in the axles so that the tires aren’t hitting the trailer, that is yet to be known though. We got all the cupboards cut out and drawer faces, I still need to build 10 drawers but we got a great jump on that stuff! I got started on sewing some curtains too!
In other news Denny is getting big and strong, now 4 weeks old he is halfway to the age he needs to be to fly over!
